Students are eligible to graduate in the associated degree at the end of three years of full-time study, only when they have completed all non-law units plus the eight law units specified in the study sequence as being in the first three years of the relevant double degree.

The most recent version of course 2501 indicates which units are offered in the course. The School will publish information on which units are available in a session.
